TOP 5 TIPS

Angling Times (UK) - - TIPS & TACTICS -

1 In clear water coated braid hook­lengths are very vis­i­ble to bar­bel, so try us­ing mono or thin braid in­stead.

2 In low water crash­ing a large feeder on the fish’s head isn’t ideal so in such con­di­tions use a straight lead and PVA mesh bag.

3 If trav­el­ling to a river from a long dis­tance al­ways check the lev­els on the in­ter­net – some­thing I for­got and paid the price for!

4 When after big fish on a river, use a ground­bait mix that binds to­gether well as you don’t want it to wash away quickly.

5 Plan­ning is crit­i­cal to con­sis­tently catch big fish and I would say that at least 50 per cent of any suc­cess or fail­ure is de­cided be­fore you leave home.
